Blackboard are performing data centre maintenance that will affect the use of the Blackboard mobile apps, namely:
- Blackboard Mobile Learn
- Bb Student
- Bb Grader
Between 05:00 on July 23 and 07:00 on July 24 it will not be possible to
- set up a connection by launching the app for the first time and locating the University
- receive push notifications
Those who have already set up logins and connections should be able to continue to use the apps, but will not receive push notifications. In any case the mobile apps should not be expected to provide full service during this time period. Inaccessibility may continue until network changes have been full propagated by DNS.
Standard access to Blackboard via https://blackboard.soton.ac.uk will be unaffected. Blackboard use by this route should be used in the event of any issues.
